More and more people play mobile in online casinos. No wonder, our world is becoming more and more networked, so that it is not only cheap mobile data to buy. More and more WiFi hotspots are public and often even free of charge.
Therefore, providers in our online casino test must make sure that the mobile version on the smartphone is good. Almost all Mobile casinos have a responsive web app, but only a few have a native app. We will show you the difference in the following two sections.
Native casino app
Not every provider has an independent online casino app to download. Therefore, in this case the online casino test gives it a very good rating. With a native casino app, you have to download and install an app directly.
This does require storage space, but such stand-alone apps - once set up - are very fast and also offer a greater selection of games than mobile web apps.
Your login data will be saved (optional) and you can play a game immediately from anywhere. In addition, the navigation and menu navigation is more pleasant with a native app.
But other disadvantages are causing more and more online casinos not to develop an independent app. That is associated with a lot of effort and therefore an investment. In addition, the app has to be constantly updated by both the operator and the user - not even mentioning the necessary storage space.
Nevertheless, there are plus points in our online casino rating for providers who develop their own app. This is evidence of a long-term plan and should be valued and rewarded. A native app underlines the seriousness of a casino.
Mobile web app
As already mentioned, most online casinos rely on a mobile web app without a download. You simply call up the website of the casino in your browser and can gamble directly after logging in.
The responsive design of the website is activated and the ads automatically adjust to the size of the device. Here in particular, the developers have to pay attention to the subtleties, which is also checked accordingly in our online casino tests.
The advantages are obvious - you save storage space and don't have to worry about annoying updates. However, you have to do without some games for this, because web apps often do not offer all the games from the online casino's portfolio.
In the online casino evaluation, we attach great importance to the fact that the mobile web app loads quickly and that switching between games is quick. We also evaluate the navigation between the individual pages and folding out the keyboard.
